Sir Elton and David Furnish welcome another son

Sir Elton John is now the proud dad of two.

He and David Furnish welcomed a baby boy on January 11, the legendary musician confirmed on his website.

Elijah Joseph Daniel Furnish-John arrived in Los Angeles via surrogate that Friday evening, weighing in at 8 pounds, 4 ounces.

The couple, who wed in 2005, are also parents to two-year-old Zachary Jackson Levon Furnish-John, and they told Hello! magazine that they've always wanted Zachary to have a sibling.

"Both of us have longed to have children, but the reality that we now have two sons is almost unbelievable," John and Furnish said in a joint statement. "The birth of our second son completes our family in a most precious and perfect way. It is difficult to fully express how we are feeling at this time; we are just overwhelmed with happiness and excitement."

    Sir Elton looks so tired but Furnish looking quite spry! I wish them luck. The most critical ingredient in a child's life is LOVE and ATTENTION from their parent(s) and I hope this generation of kids gets what they need from their LGBT moms and dads. Some day these 'stories' will not be news at all. I suspect that will be a good thing for civilization.

    To everyone worried about how the kids will turn out with 2 dads – or two moms, for that matter ... I ask you to research the following and see their parents (mom/dad, dad/dad, mom/mom) ...

    – John Wayne Gacy
    – Jeffrey Dahmer
    – Ted Bundy
    – Charles Manson
    – Timothy McVeigh
    – Adam Lanza (you don't have to bother looking him up – it's been widely proven that his parents are mom/dad)

    Congrats to Sir Elton and his partner – their children are lucky to have loving parents, regardless of each one's respective gender.

      Nighty eight percent of children brought up in the world do not have a "normal life". If they are loved and nurtured, can you get past that it is by 2 men that are able to raise them and give them financial security? I am okay with that, I wouldn't have been with Elton 30 years ago.

    The thing is haters........they did not seek your approval or ask for you opinion on this because they do need nor care what you think!!! It's not up to the world to abide by your beliefs. Did you ask them if it was ok for you to marry your spouse, have children,etc? No, you did not and for the same reasons – you would never let people dictate your own life. So why on earth do you think you get to? Why does everyone think they have to throw their opinion out of every single issue, story, etc. Get a life people and get out of theirs, ours, and everyone elses!! Geez!!! Also, why would you read stories on things you do not approve of just you can post your hate and OPINIONS? That is all they are – your own personal opinions. This does not make it law or the rule for the whole world. It does however make you pathetic and sad.

      This is an opinion board and people are free to share theirs. While I strongly support gay marriage and adoption by any people who are financially, physically, educationally and emotionally prepared to become parents, I also agree that adopting at such an advanced age by Mr. John borders on less-than-responsible. I hope they both remain energetic and functional through age 18 of their kids. Their deck is stacked unfavorably, unfortunately.

      Jen, it's clear that you are insane. Do you even have the faintest idea what you're saying? You claim God is angry? First, how on Earth do YOU know what your deity thinks of a couple of gay English guys? Are you that special? Did your God TELL you? If so, you are experiencing auditory hallucinations and may be suffering from schizophrenia, Second, Elton John and his husband are British, so your comment about the "problem with Americans" is completely irrelevant. Third, you actually say that you are THANKFUL that you FEAR God. What sane person would actually ENJOY fearing their deity? Then, amazingly, you go on to THANK your deity for your fear. You are without a doubt mentally unstable, and should seek professional help.

    I am a Dem and yet even I never agreed with this situation. Children should (when possible) have the life influence from a mother and father, it is nature's perfect balance. I have always loved Elton John's music from when I was a child but this isn't right. What I would like to know is which is the biological father? You can only use one, so was the previous child from one guy's semen and the recent child from the other?
    I am sure when the child learns they have no mother because their "dads" don't like women, etc, it will hurt their feelings although they will pretend it doesn't to save face. Humans do it all the time, we pretend something doesn't bother us even when it does. And as others have said older people should stop being selfish just because they can afford to do so and not have children they might not be around to raise. I am 44 my son is 19.

      Being a dem doesn't make your prejudiced and frankly dumb views on gay parents any more valid. There really is no perfect natural balance that is created by having a mother and a father. In reality, parenthood is painful and difficult. The imagined 1950's stereotype of a mother/father/kids family is just that: a stereotype. There is no real reason to believe that a mother and a father are any more capable of raising a child than two fathers.

    Ever notice that people telling you that you have to be tolerant, are not very tolerant of your viewpoint?

    Good luck and God bless the new baby, and his family. MY church and MY beliefs do not agree with what they are doing, but I also am sane enough to realize that not everyone shares MY church and MY beliefs. Nor am I so egotistical as to believe *I* have the right church and right beliefs.

    All I ask is that people STOP ridiculing others' beliefs – regardless of how old-fashioned, or prejudiced, or judgmental they seem. This is still America, and we can believe how we wish – it is ONLY when you act on those beliefs in a disriminatory fashion that you are committing a crime ... so haters can hate, and hate seems to be going both ways in this thread.

    It's not their orientation I take issue with. It's their age. Elton John MIGHT live to see his kids finish grade school. His partner MIGHT live to see them graduate college. I realize that discrimination has kept these two from being able to enjoy parenthood in their youth, but they should simply accept that they are like elderly slaves who got freed in 1865 and that the fruits of their efforts to make life better for GLBT people will have to be enjoyed by the next generation. This isn't something to be commended. This is the ultimate act of selfishness.

      I have to agree with you. I was almost 50 when my mother died and it was shattering. I may well have to bury my father before I turn 60 and the thought is frightening. I can't imagine how lost I would have been growing up without their support and advice through the years. We don't just need our parents when we are little kids, we need them throughout our lives, and it seems very unfair to have a child, knowing that you are going to deprive them of the support they will need in the future.

      It is horrible when a child loses a parent due to an accident. Somehow this just seems worse, since the parents must KNOW that it is almost certain they will die when the children are still very young.

      Which one of them carried the baby? Neither – then "they" DIDN'T HAVE a baby. Nature's laws don't change. Some would like you to think it's natural, but........ And while I'm sure the money there will ensure the kid is taken care of, it was very selfish for two guys that age.

      It is impossible because two males cannot procreate (neither can two females). And using a surrogate is the same as treating a woman as a baby-making machine to be used solely so they can be "parents". It is not only disgusting, it is a terrible sin.

      "And conservative evangelicals keep saying that gay people can't procreate."

      Actually they didn't. A woman was involved.

      What makes you think they " bought" a child? Just like anyone else, the child was conceived, carried, and born, with typical costs of pregancy along the way. Do you even understand the process they used to become parents – its called Gestational Surrogacy – google it. There was no adoption or "sale" involved.

    The ignorance of some people astounds me. I'm using the word ignorance meaning unimformed. I was married for 15 years. My wife and I had 3 children. We were happy but eventually grew apart mostly because my job took me out of the country for weeks on end sometimes. AFTER we divorced I moved on to who I was siince childhood. I'm gay and my partner and I have been together for 32 years. So, gay people can and do procreate. None of my children or grandchildren are gay.

      I agree with you Linda. Best wishes to them and their sons. It seems to me like it is okay to have children if you are straight older stars buy not gay stars. For example: Connie Chung(49) & Maury Povich (56); Cheryl Tiegs (52); Matt Lauer (49); Michael Douglas (56); Warren Beatty (63) & Annette Bening(42). Elton & David can provide for their sons' future should something happen. No child is guaranteed to be raised until adulthood by their parents. Tragedy can happen to any one, at any age, taking one or both parents from them.
